Overdone it?

Can't believe you do 2.53 suffering, Muddy!  Good work.

And congrats on the PB's DT and charlie - i liked your tales of catching up with each other.  

Tommy - another mental sounding run from you!  You do seem to be getting into this ultra stuff.  

Sorry I've not been around much.  My mojo has well and truly jumped off a cliff.  Lots of life stress including work issues and having to completely resort childcare after our childminder quit giving us no notice whatsoever.  So I've been ticking over on about 15-20 mpw!  So I'm binning off Bristol half as it's a long way to go to put in a shit performance.  I'll do Rugby 10 the following week instead as that's not very far and to get team points. The new plan will be to probably follow the 10k plan that I did last year for Telford in December and include some off road sessions in that as seemed to work well for XC prep as well.  And then give a spring half a good go.  I think the cooler weather will help I hope.

Sounds like v good sessions for Skinny and Muddy. Great stuff.

I had a lovely 16 miler with Lit this morning. I probably felt a little less bouncy than her but we did a grand tour of the off-roading in the area and I also met her very lovely niece! Now watching the women's marathon and realising I can run that pace for about 800 metres!

When you do the TTT I am also another year older now.

Official time for race was 19:43 for TTT.  

I want to get some lightweight racing shoes.  Don't know what yet.  I have some vouchers so going to visit an actual shop!

We can't do Autumnal this year as away.

Never done the Masseys corporate 5. Might be the same as the Masseys Easter 5 which was long when I did it. But all the Memorial Park ones are variations on a mildly undulating, parky theme.

That's to Lit by the way.

Muddy - not had official results yet but prob no prize. They count vets from 40 for some reason and there were a lot of speedy BRAT girls there of the ilk that I only normally see at the XC. Tall, skinny, young, swingy ponytails, you know the sort.

Lou working today so run might be tricky but could join you for a long run onSunday. How long are you thinking of?

Lit - I would like a run...especially as it is my birthday on Friday, but I have the kids due to school hols which makes it a bit trickier. When are you around until? Hopefully we can work something out.

Sounds like very good training, Tommy. If you can complete the session without being bollocksed then maybe your fitness is better than you thought.

I can't do long runs in an evening either, Muddy. Good effort though.

Are you still following your FIRST plan, DT?

Sounds like a decent session, Pete.

I went over to Birmingham tonight for BRAT's 5k race. I didn't have v high expectations for it. The route isbadicslly two laps of z housing estate going down then up two hills. Then repeat. I did this race last year and it was awful due to lack of fitness after injury. Luckily it was not so awful tonight and I got another PB! Think about 19.40 but need official time to confirm.

As to the 20th, do they do Parkrun in France?  

I won't be in limbo in October/November - I'll be gearing up for cross country season!  But parkrun is useful prep for that in any case.

Well done on some good Parkrunning, Skinny and Muddy.  But especially Skinny for a new PB!  

DT - that's really sad and scary in equal measure.  Did he have kids?  Awful.  

Tommy - well done on your track exploits and not breaking anything.

Madbee - sounds like some solid mileage.  

I've not really been feeling the running love just lately.  Mileage has dropped a bit and seem to be struggling to complete my sessions as planned.  I think it's just probably a function of coming to the end of the racing season maybe a tad early. I only need to get one more set of results in the League though to have my 7 races (which is the minimum) and then pressure is off a bit.   That can be done in a 5k too which should be less demanding.  I could be in for a prize in the v35 category so want to try and secure that if possible.  I'm meant to be full on into half marathon training but just feeling a bit tired.  Had bloods done as well that have come back as normal although receptionist is doing me a print out as I never trust their definition of "normal".  

Did a 14 mile run yesterday which was the furthest I've run for about 6 weeks.  Meant to be progressive with the last 2 at LT but considering we live at the top of a long hill that didn't really happen.  I did it progressive until about mile 12 and then slowed for the hill and then ran the last mile which is flatter at LT pace so not too bad I think.  Felt shattered afterwards though.  Long runs make me so tired!  

Might just use any races as sessions though as struggling with the motivation when it feels like hard work on my own at the moment.  

Skinny - no actual prizes in Interclub.  Well, there was a shield for team prize but that includes the entire female half of the club.  So not sure if that counts or not?
